Here's a page out of Monte's Taper Handbook

Ron Wickersham's technical description detailing the Wall of Sound is based on "the WOS system" that was used at this Hollywood Bowl show.

I love that picture of the Wall so much I've been using it for my desktop wallpaper the past several months! Thanks for all the awesome stuff you contribute, I've spent a lot of time wrangling PA and recording gear in a semi-pro fashion as a musician and I've learned so much from all your posts. I always think it's hard for people who haven't had the experience of trying to set up, amplify, and record a band onstage to realize just how much goes into all the layers beyond just moving the fingers on the instruments.
